    First utility smart meter 11th Jul 18 at 8:27 PM
    Keep getting emails threatening to put me on standard tariff if I don't contact them about getting a smart meter fitted.
    I am signed up to a cheap deal based on getting a smart meter but do they carry out their threats or should i just ignore?.
    4kWp, South facing, 16 x phono solar panels, Solis inverter, Lincolnshire.

    The clue is in the name - to get and keep the tariff you have to have a smart meter fitted and, by refusing one, you are breaking the tariff terms and conditions.

    They therefore within their rights to put you on their standard tariff if you continue to refuse the things.

    Look on the bright side - they are effectively paying you to have the things by giving you a discount on their charges to have them.
